Soccer is a HUGE deal at our Club. The soccer balls that came in the kits this summer were awesome and the kids loved them. Even though soccer is popular, many of the kids here don't own their own soccer ball so having one in their bag for them to keep was amazing. That will always be the first soccer ball they got to call their own and it came from you guys!
Before long the mom walked back to school with a wagon and told us that everyone in the neighborhood wanted a box!
On the day the Active Discovery Kits were given out, one family went home and started playing with the items in it and the Activity Book, and before long the mom walked back to school with a wagon and told us that everyone in the neighborhood wanted a box --would it be possible? Of course we sent her on her way with a wagon full of boxes.
We love the fact that we are able to reach our bilingual parents! Thank you!
We want to give a special shout out to Active Discovery for partnering with us this year and bringing our youth these awesome Active Discovery Kits. We love the fact that we are able to reach our bilingual parents! Thank you!
They were happy and super tired afterwards.
Wow the kids loved the Art & Agility kits. I wasn’t sure how the full range of ages would respond to the Pointillism education and projects, but 15 minutes into the first session - they were into it! Everyone was quietly working - it was almost magical seeing them escape into art and be so peaceful. Their finished pictures were amazing too! The agility grids were cool - we played sprinting Tic Tac Toe, and then did lots of different movement patterns - everyone was happy and super tired afterwards. Thank you for coming up with such great kits. The staff and the kids look forward to them. Boys & Girls Club, After School Development Director
You reinforce [our] determination with your generosity of giving and kindness.
Thank you for your wonderful gift of Active Discovery Kits with computer coding activities, active play toys, and bilingual Activity Books. Our resolve to help reduce the gaps in the education of children experiencing homelessness is stronger than ever and you reinforce that determination with your generosity of giving and kindness.
The bilingual Active Discovery Kits were a big hit!
Thank you for all of your support this year! The bilingual Active Discovery Kits were a big hit. Students were overjoyed to use them and even more excited to take them home.
Love these kits!
These kits can be used over and over again, encouraging regular activity. It was certainly eye opening for many children because it provided an opportunity and access to something new for them.
Our Active Discovery Kits are designed to nudge kids to a level of activity that improves their capacity for learning and opens their eyes to possibilities they never imagined.
When many of us were kids our parents gave us a chance to find an activity we liked. We tried multiple sports, musical instruments, scouts, trying to find something that clicked. Our Active Discovery kits are designed to give financially vulnerable kids a window into a variety of activities they might otherwise never see, and every kit includes both activity equipment and an Activity Book. Whether it is Soccer, Cooking, Coding, or Music, our products give financially vulnerable kids a chance to find a passion. We team up with kids and their families, Title 1 schools, YMCAs, and other partner-providers to help financially vulnerable kids THRIVE...not just survive.
We believe that we can help level the playing field by giving financially vulnerable kids and their families opportunities (through our products) they don’t currently have, and this can lead them to grow in how they see their future and give them a pathway to progress regardless of their current circumstances.
We strive to make our experiences as accessible as possible, and that’s why all of our written products are bilingual, increasing the opportunity for parents and kids to work together.
We believe there are amazing programs, people and organizations dedicated to helping financially vulnerable kids, which provide nearly endless opportunities for partnering with Active Discovery, because with our products and their face-to-face work, we create SYNERGY in helping these children THRIVE.
